I didn't understand the use case of this extra_context.

I think the same result it's possible to achieve overwriting the template.

Can you explain better the use case of this new extra_context?

For the patch/pull request:

1 - It'd need to update docs:

2 - It'd need to update the provided template, currently it's ignoring extra_context

Since the ticket was opened, each_context() has been added to the AdminSite class, so it's possible to provide additional context fields by subclassing AdminSite and overriding each_context(). Does this make this ticket unnecessary? I'll happily fix up the patch if it's useful, but I don't want to do that if the feature is no longer needed.
